Dear Austin Parker,
I must write to thank you for the time you took to sit with my dying father. I know he was grateful for the daily visits, and though he did not say it he was at peace for those last few days. Your prayers and words eased his passing, and he seemed to suffer less because of it.
I know that you are a busy man but knowing that you took the time means more to us then you will ever know. Your kind words and actions will never be forgotten.
